The furry wiseguy from Melmac has crash-landed on MeTV! After following a radio signal to Earth, Gordon Shumway (Paul Fusco) cracks up his shuttlecraft in suburbia, ending up in the garage of the Tanner family, who promptly give him the nickname ALF (alien life form). Though he is troublesome, slovenly and sarcastic, ALF never takes his pranks too far and makes plenty of earthling friends while learning about his new home.
